Doc Watson: Black Mountain Rag (1991)

"I love music, and luckily have enough God-given talent, ‘til, with help, I developed it, and encouragement is what I mean by help, and when the folk revival came along, it became a vocation.

"I feel about me like I’m one of the working people, just like you, and everybody else. I don’t fit the part of a celebrity. They put me on a pedestal, I’ll jump off. I can’t stand that."

While on the You Tube music kick, I thought I'd post a video of another of my absolute favorite musicians: Doc Watson (born 1923): the greatest flatpicking guitarist in the world. Who could fail to love this marvelous music?
